Coming down out of the freezing sky with its depths of light, like an angel, or a Buddha with wings, it was beautiful, and accurate, striking the snow and whatever was there with a force that left the imprint of the tips of its wings — five feet apart — and the grabbing thrust of its feet, and the indentation of what had been running through the white valleys of the snow — and then it rose, gracefully, and flew back to the frozen marshes to lurk there, like a little lighthouse, in the blue shadows — so I thought: maybe death isn’t darkness, after all, but so much light wrapping itself around us — as soft as feathers — that we are instantly weary of looking, and looking, and shut our eyes, not without amazement, and let ourselves be carried, as through the translucence of mica, to the river that is without the least dapple or shadow, that is nothing but light — scalding, aortal light — in which we are washed and washed out of our bones.

A Snowflakes Promise.....New Challenge

Today's card is a design team make for the wonderful team over at A Snowflakes Promise. This challenge will run for the following fortnight and the theme is Anything Goes.  The sponsor for this challenge is the fantastic team over at a Day for Daisies. I chose to work with this sweet image of the fairy sat on the Christmas lights. I love the idea that a fairy could be sat on a light and that you might not see her because she blended in with the light.

I do hope that you will pop over to the Day for Daisies page and take a look at the really magical images that are there.I have been lucky to work with this sponsor a number of times and have loved them all. I hope that you will also pop over to the Snowflakes Promise blog and take a look at all the fabulous creations made by the rest of the team.

At the moment the mountains are covered slightly with cloud...the main question is it going to come down all the way and turn us into Brigadoon or is it going to float on by. Yesterday, I spent the day not being able to see any of the mountains, the cloud was so low. It's all been going on here...the carpet and lino are now down and my kitchen has now got a floor covering.I still can't believe it..I've waited so long. I'm still in the process of sorting the kitchen cupboards and the like..I'm hoping to get it finished by next week but who knows. I'm doing it little by little and trying not to make my legs hurt so much. I don't know if it's the change in the weather or what but my legs are complaining alot.

All the cats are in and out. For the last few nights I have had my bed hijacked by Jeffrey,Raven and Gannie. They do make me laugh..they all have their own spots and are not for sharing. Jeffrey really doesn't like sharing the have to keep reminding him that it's actually mine. The bedroom is half way done. I keep wandering from room to room sorting things all the doorways there are bags with stuff ready to move to another room. I think in another couple of weeks the main rooms will be done. It's just as well really..I have a lot of work to do.

Well the coffee is calling and then I'll be doing some stamping ready for the weekend. I'm aiming to fill a storage box with designs ready to colour. The only thing that I have to remember to do is to note which inkpad I've used..Versafine for watercolouring and Memento for alcohol pens..else I end up in a right I've already decided on dinner tonight and we're going very retro..liver and onions with mashed potatoes and cabbage. To me this meal reminds me of my Grandmother. It was my Grandfathers favourite dinner and he demanded it once a week. My Grandmother never complained because it was a very cheap dinner and it still is. So until tomorrow..take care and happy crafting.
